    An-Naba’ 78:30

    فَذُوقُواْ فَلَن نَّزِيدَكُمۡ إِلَّا عَذَابًا

    Al-Ahzab – 33:65

    Arabic

    خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَآ أَبَدًاۖ لَّا يَجِدُونَ وَلِيًّا وَلَا نَصِيرًا

    Don’t these verses make it clear cut that hell will be eternal for some? 11:107-108 could simply be referring to a specific group of people

    We read the Quran in its totality. Some other verses indicate that God might not let the hell go eternal.

    الَّذِينَ شَقُوا فَفِي النَّارِ لَهُمْ فِيهَا زَفِيرٌ وَشَهِيقٌ ﴿١٠٦﴾ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا مَا دَامَتِ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ رَبُّكَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ فَعَّالٌ لِّمَا يُرِيدُ ﴿

    If someone doesn’t ct upon his threat, it is not considered violation of his promise but an act of generosity and pardon. However the rejectors of truth won’t be able to enter the paradise as it is against the sense of justice .

      Yes but the verses I gave are very clear that it is eternal. So there could be another reason for the verses in surah hud- like

      Like giving hope to the believers

      There are verses where Allah says for both hell and heaven as for eternity and then also adds that except as Allah wills. But for heaven Allah promises, but for hell there is no promise but a threat. You may find some info in this video.

      Some are threats but some are just records of dialogues God has said to those people like verses i sent- or they are words hat would be said to the disbelievers on doj. So obviously they can’t be taken as false

      Yes but the aayaat I posted above seem to paint a diverse picture

      “We read the Quran in its totality.” – like Irfan sb. suggested.

      Yes. And the totality has verses that suggest it is eternal- not warnings- but descriptive statements of people being in hell forever- and then one verse that says maybe it won’t last forever. I think that’s quite clear to show it is eternal for some people and maybe not for some others
